Lucifer in harness; American meter, metaphor, and diction by Edwin S Fussell( )

16 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in English and held by 1,673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly two hundred years the rebellious American poet has been reluctantly harnessed to the English language and literary tradition. In a triptych of essays, Edwin Fussell attempts ""to explore the fundamental dilemma of American poetry as it appears in the three crucial fields of meter, metaphor, and poetic diction, the three crucial fields of American poetry (taken as a whole) most studiously avoided by American scholars, but not, as I intend to show, by American poets."" Writing in a provocative critical style attuned to the poets he discusses, Edwin Fussell explores the dilemma of t

The Catholic side of Henry James by Edwin S Fussell( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first part of the book, Fussell discusses the influence of James' Catholic friends like John La Farge; and the ambivalent attitudes toward Catholic sensibilities in writers like Cooper and Emerson and Hawthorne, James' more or less immediate predecessors on the literary scene, as well as in his contemporaries like Mark Twain and Howells. Fussell then examines the beginnings of Catholic fiction in America and the rapidly growing number of Catholics in the population and in the reading audience for fiction. He claims that the religious mix in the literary scene provided James with a commercial opportunity to explore his penchant for the Protestant-Catholic theme. The rest of the book explores the presentation of Catholics and of Catholicism in James' fiction, using criticism, letters, and notebooks to illuminate the fiction. Fussell's examination ranges from James' early reviews of religious books for the Nation and early tales like "De Grey: A Romance" through much of the canon, along the way reexamining James' overlooked play Guy Domville and climaxing with a magnificent reading of The Golden Bowl, convincingly demonstrating James' involvement with Catholic themes."--Jacket

Catholic Side of Henry James by Edwin S Fussell( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Catholic Side of Henry James reveals the profound Catholic imagery in the work of Henry James. Edwin Fussell questions conventional critical assumptions about James' secularity and shows that James' career began with narratives of Catholic conversion and ended with his masterpiece of Catholic eccentricity and alienation, The Golden Bowl. The interplay of men and women, of America and Europe - those acknowledged Jamesian themes - comes to be overlaid with the interplay between Protestant and Catholic. Fussell's examination ranges from James' early reviews of religious books for the Nation and early tales like 'De Grey: A Romance' through much of the canon, along the way re-examining James' overlooked play Guy Domville and climaxing with a magnificent reading of The Golden Bowl, convincingly demonstrating James' involvement with Catholic themes
